Krieger Crowned PPC UK Mini Main Event Champion

23 days ago

Germany’s Philipp Krieger helped himself to the largest partypoker Players Championship UK score of the series so far courtesy of triumphing in the PPC UK #08 Mini Main Event on April 24. The $109 buy-in tournament saw 2,498 players buy-in across numerous Day 1s, but only 371 of those starters made it through to the final day, each of them securing at least a min-cash.

Each of the Day 2 players received at least $219 for their efforts, but this amount increased to almost $3,000 by the time the nine-handed final table was set. The final table was a cosmopolitan affair with eight countries represented.

Mexico lost its horse in the race when Nikita Kalinin crashed out in ninth for $2,837. Brazilian William Barbosa ($3,643), Germany’s Niko Wieland ($4,599), and Joao Gaspar of Malta ($5,944) joined Kalinin on the sidelines.

Ivan Balzano was the last recipient of a four-figure prize; the Argentinian collected $7,799 after his demise in fifth place.

Fourth-place and $11,469 went to Artem Voziianov, who calls Kazakhstan home, before Viktor Popov of Bulgaria saw his tournament end in a third-place finish worth $17,306. Popov’s exit left Philipp Krieger heads-up against Swedish grinder Max Herulf. The one-on-one battle went Krieger’s way, and he secured a $37,382 payout, leaving Herulf to walk away with a $25,377 consolation prize.
